, is to talk about a vote that the house republicans are going to take tomorrow to raise the debt ceiling temporarily for three months. and what he informed his caucus about, just in the last hour and a half, is that they are going to write a budget that tries to balance the budget in ten years. that is going to mean massive cuts across the board from the perspective of republicans, but that's how he hopes to get conservatives to agree to raise the debt ceiling temporarily. >> he's got his own problems, as well as speaker. not an easy job. we'll stand by to hear what he says. dana, thank. so what exactly did the president say that raised so much republican ire? kate balduan is here. she's got more on this part of the story. >> yeah, wolf, as you and i know, he used some pretty broad strokes in his inaugural speech to paint a blueprint on major issues he hopes to focus on facing the country. all controversial in trying to get republicans on board. cnn's chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, is here with more details. jessica, what's the latest on the president's second-term agen
